    Cons

    It a long drive from home and I'm spending more than I can afford in gas

    Advice to Management

    My managers at the shop I currently work at are just amazing people

    I worked at Tires Plus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    If you have a strong well oiled team that helps you its not that bad. Remember team work makes the dream work. At the shop i worked at there were only males we had a decent coworker relationship and cracked a lot of jokes and had many laughs. Sometimes there would be barely anything to do for weeks and other times we would be slammed from open until closed. If you are looking to gain experience in the automotive field...

    Cons

    There are time constraints that we as technicians are barely able to meet 30 minutes max for an oil change 59 minutes for a set of 4 tires. If you are completing these tasks by yourself one misplaced impact gun or oil filter wrench can send you over the short time limit easily. Not that it takes 30 minutes for a regular oil change but we have to inspect every vehicle and check tread dept air pressure brake fluid levels...

    Advice to Management

    There are small things that might take you 30 seconds to do that will save technicians exponential time down the line like I said before team work makes the dream work. Also there is this new thing called splash guards that most modern cars have now which takes almost 4 minutes to uninstall and reinstall yet us technicians are still expected to maintain that under 30 minute oil change please lets be a little realistic.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Tires Plus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you like turning wrenches and working on vehicles, this job is for you

    Cons

    Low pay, constantly having a manager try, key word, to talk down to you/intimidate you, there is a "good ole' boy" clique in the company, not getting proper training, being made to work more then 50 hours in a week and go 9 days plus without a day off, shop is always DIRTY and no one takes pride in keeping it clean. If you go against the grain of the guys you work with you will IMMEDIATELY become an outcast.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your heads out of your behinds. The saying "Too many chiefs not enough Indians" applies. You cannot treat your bottom level employees the way you do and expect great results.

    "Egomaniacal management beyond reproach, with a corporate system that cares little about the lower level employees."

    I have been working at Tires Plus full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Gain experience with a wide variety of vehicles, employee discounts are decent, they pay for ASE certification.

    Cons

    Managers are left to run their store how they see fit, so if you get a manager with a superiority complex and mood swings (like my manager) you will be at the mercy of someone who is never wrong and willing to argue and threaten your job on a daily basis. The sales staff and management have very little automotive knowledge, but all have the ability to threaten you with termination as they see fit. Add that to low pay,...

    Advice to Management

    Hire sales staff and managers with prior (verifiable) experience in automotive and sales. 2 years selling groceries does not qualify.. Teach managers to treat their employees better and take employee grievances more seriously. You will retain a higher caliber of employees this way.

    I worked at Tires Plus

    Pros

    Employee's are very relaxed with each other. Its nice to work in an open garage, I was lucky to be located where a wind tunnel caused fresh air to blow into the shop, which can soften a lot of stress.

    Cons

    Others may experience differently as each location is privately owned. But I had 3 managers at "all" times telling me what to do constantly. That would have been fine if they all didn't give me a different instruction to do. I ended up getting yelled at every time they walked by asking "What are you doing!?" I would explain that Manager number 2 told me to do it this way...and they would tell me that "Manager number 2...

    Advice to Management

    Treat employee's like people and not like slaves. We deserve respect too considdering we are the one's doing the real work outside, while you sit in a chair at an air-conditioned front desk.
